Size Matters

This post is a long time coming, but I had to remark on the literal downsizing of one of my most favorite breakfast sandwiches ever in life: 

*Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sandwich on Ciabatta bread* 

One of my biggest gripes about starting the workday at 7 am is that my local Panera Bread doesn't open until 6:30, and I'm usually in too much of a rush to drop in. My favorite breakfast combo is the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sandwich on Ciabatta bread with a cinnamon chip scone. Yummers! You haven't lived until you've had that sandwich. DELICIOUS!

Last winter there were a few ice storms that forced my job to delay about 3 hours. On one of these mornings I had the opportunity to make it a PB day in which I got the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sandwich.To my surprise and disappointment, the sandwich was significantly smaller. There was noticeably less egg and cheese. I nearly had a conniption when I noticed the lack of bacon strips. I'm not happy, especially considering the price is still the same. The sandwich looked as if it had been flattened by a car tire or Steven Segal punched it in the face and it just sort of deflated.
